The immediacy and linear quality of drawing naturally lends itself to my way of working. Growing out of this, my sculptural work aims to take the fundamental properties of drawing (with a focus on flatness and line) and transfer these into new spatial situations. Physical spaces are intersected by lines and forms that optically flatten an environment, each step the viewer takes offering a new perspective on extruding entities that seem to discard any kind of three-dimensional physicality.
This practice based series of installations explores nostalgia and the fragility of memory and mortality through the lens of the family snapshot and the family photograph album. The overriding theme is the notion that the sense of self and agency as an artist is informed by nostalgia and the autobiographical memory though the photograph. The installations utilise the iPad, digital and analogue projected images as a means of visualisation.
